2015 Polaris Sportsman 850 SP Key Features:
Hardest Working Features:
Powerful 850 EFI High Output Engine
The High-Output 850 Twin EFI engine with a SOHC cranks out 77 HP. It delivers outstanding acceleration off the line with incredible power to the ground. Add-in a clean fuel burn and smooth power delivery with dual-balanced shafts and you’ve got the power you’re looking for to trail ride and hunt.
High Performance Close Ratio On-Demand AWD
The best just got better, the high-performance close ratio AWD system engages all four tires faster than ever when you need more traction. Works with the EPS system to provide Sportsman signature handling and reverts back to 2WD when you’re back on solid ground.
Maximum Headlight Power
Two lights are located in the front bumper and one mounted in the handlebar pod. Maximize your lighting with the ability to have all three on at once for 150 W of power.
Maximum Power and Functionality
With the power to tow 1,500 lbs. and carry a total of 360 lbs. on racks, plus the ability to accessorize in seconds with the Lock & Ride cargo system.
5-Layer metallic automotive-style finish is 9 times more scratch-resistant than standard plastic
Huge Rack Capacity
Lock & Ride front and rear racks can carry an industry-leading combined 360 lbs and boast 100 tie-down points on strong, rust-free composite racks. Letting you carry all of your gear securely and easily.
Smoothest Riding Features:
Electronic Power Steering
The smoothest, most responsive power steering available, with 30% more power assist than the leading competitor, plus Variable Assist for easier steering at lower speeds. Our EPS let’s you ride all day with less fatigue from steering.
Ergonomics For Your Comfort
With the engine rotated 90 degrees, riders enjoy 33% wider floorboards and narrow vehicle width at the knees and ankles. The narrower seat reduces leg fatigue and increases rider comfort.
Class-leading 11.5" Ground Clearance
With 11.5" of ground clearance, clear bigger rocks, navigate deeper ruts, and go where other ATVs can’t.
Placing the steering axis near the neutral center of the tire and having the long Dual A-Arm front suspension dramatically reduces kickback and minimizes rider fatigue that comes with jolts to the handlebars from trail and ground obstacles.
Legendary Smooth Rolled IRS
Years of innovation and relentless tuning have refined the ride to a level unmatched in the industry. Rolled Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) angles the shocks rearward for 10.25" of travel leading to a smoother ride and less squat during acceleration.
Supreme Vehicle Control With ADC and EBS
Active Descent Control (ADC) and Engine Braking System (EBS) work together to control downhill braking to give you optimum control and smooth, even deceleration during descents.
